Who's down for dim sum?
Thanks to the shout out by @cyndascookies, we visited Kam Wai Dim Sum for lunch.
It mainly sells frozen dim sum, but it also has a small selection of steamed dim sum at a very affordable price. We had:
Har Gow (shrimp dumplings)
Siu Mai (pork dumplings)
Lo Mai Gai (sticky rice "chicken" which is usually not expected to have chicken inside)
Cha Siu Bao and
Chicken and shiitake mushroom rice
Our plates of lunches cost $8.5 and $8.25 respectively.
We enjoyed the cha siu bao here more than the ones at New Town, the chicken in the chicken rice is soft and the house soy sauce matches very well with it. It doesn't serve the typical siu mai with the shrimp on top, but it's also not bad. The har gow skin is a bit on the thicker side though. The sticky rice has a great portion and comes with a piece of Chinese sausage too. There are only two small tables so it's best to get take out.
All in all, it's an enjoyable, affordable meal from a side of Chinatown that is getting smaller. We'll be back!
